This excellent series is great for reviewing one's French. The native speakers, English phrases given, followed by French and the ability to repeat it twice made it easy to use. These became my "workout" CD's. I spent an hour a day, while walking, listening and using this program. When I went on my trip about a month later, my French from 20 years ago had comfortably returned. I would highly recommend this for students for practice.

I'm preparing for a trip to France. I took 3 yrs French in high school & 2 yrs in college over 30 years ago. I had very little conversation in school but I wanted to be able to speak to the locals while I traveled.
I got Pimsleur Quick & Simple French, which was good, especially the pronunciation, but it wasn't advanced enough for me. Then I got Immersion Plus:French but that was too advanced. (It's basically French conversations done at a fast & a slow speed, but no translations into English!) Then I found this audiobook. You're given a sentence in English, and there's a pause while you translate into French, then they give the French translation. Chapters are organized by subject or by certain aspect of grammar, a verb tense, for example, or "driving in your car". I find old vocabulary popping into my head as I work through this download. I'll probably review this audiobook again, then go on to the next tape. It's very good for a brush-up!
